There is a syntax error in your html doc (font color white must close). And I can't play on Firefox? (Space does not work)

I'm a hoss. I was able to stand right in the middle of the tornado!

I see that in firefox on ubuntu 11.04 the keys don't work, on windows it works, I'm not sure what the issue is.

I also hear it works OK on mac OS, so it must just be something goofy with the new linux version... ill look at fixing it for the post-ld version.

You might be too young to remember the old Mac DA mini games, but this is modeled after what I remember from those. Hopefully if you saw me in the keynote booting the mac, you got the idea that my game might be like this.

Found a bug where in a certain scenario the tornado doesn't hit you when it should, but I can fix it in post-ld version.

Funny, and educational!

Congrats on clearing the LD48!

Works fine in Linux for me. Using Google Chrome in Ubuntu 10.10.

Doesn't get past the 'press space to start' on OSX in either Chrome or Safari. :(

The black/white graphical style worked out pretty nicely.

But - uhm - am I doing something completely wrong or is it "just" running to the basement and surviving or plain old dying?

Had to reload in FF 4.0.1 for it to start properly.
Ran to the basement to wait for tornado to destroy house and it turned around, so I decided to go alone and fight the tornado. I think I won?

Well, not bad for only 3 hours of work :) And the visual aspect was striking enough. Hope to see what you can come up with next time around with a bit more time !

The clouds and tornado actually look pretty stylish... the look is cool, if only the character wasn't a spread-eagle stick figure!

Hehe, interesting. I think it needs an online score board.

Doesn't work in FF for me, doesn't display anything. On IE the java plugin is fucked up and doesn't even load properly (the latter is not your fault).

Intriguing I csn imagine other levels. Could have done with some sound and and some sort of scoring mechanic I think

Not bad for 3 hours - well done! Needs some more work to really become a game though...

Maybe that tornado could use some animation and the game could have a timer! :D
You put quite some smile on my face with that game actuly, well done on LD48 ;)
